Dot Com Pho – Free Mercedes-Benz Edition

California is the biggest market for Mercedes-Benz convertibles. With the year round sunshine, it’s not hard to understand why. With the sun out, and temperature hovering around 86F, I decided to use this episode of Dot Com Pho to show off my newest ride: a $120,000 Mercedes-Benz SL550 that I got for free!

Completely redesigned for 2013, the new SL550 is the real ultimate tanning machine. It’s beautiful with the top up or down, it’s really fast (0-60 MPH in 4 seconds), and it’s quite possibility the most technology ladened car in the world. Not only can it park itself, it can tell if you’re falling asleep behind the wheel!

In addition to the wonder Benz, this Dot Com Pho features Chris Voss of the Chris Voss Show showing off a Go Pro that is really a no go. Anyone is welcome to join us for Dot Com Pho. Follow me on Twitter to find out the time and place of the next one.

    1. John Chow says:

    Nice, Mercedes for free but isin’t 30 degrees C quite hot for driving top down?

    I recently reviewed the SLK350, a smaller sports car from Mercedes than the SL550, it was very eye catchy offering good performance.

    Here is my review – http://www.motorbeam.com/cars/mercedes-slk/mercedes-benz-slk-350-test-drive-review/

    1. John Chow says:

      Just roll up the window, engage the air draft blocker, turn the AC and you’ll be fine. Already tried that. Works great. 🙂

      1. faisal says:

        What speed did you hit? I think this car is limited to 155 mph.

  13. Matt says:

    How much was the tax?

    1. John Chow says:

      The sale tax in California varies from county to county. In Orange County, the rate is 8%.

  14. JamesW says:

    Mercedes are good ,especially when you get them for Free 🙂

  15. soon you will find your skin darker than yesterday….

    1. John Chow says:

      Two words: sun block! 🙂

  16. Hi John,

    Your post is half informative. I mean you don’t say where you got it for free.

  17. Rick says:

    This is what I’m looking for, just show me the way!

  18. This is really intriguing.. A free merc !! What did you do to earn it cause there aint no free lunches in this world 🙂

  19. Russ says:

    Sweet. Ride on.

  20. Tom says:

    Nice car. I actually prefers BMWs. I know you got a Mercedes but which one do you like better?

    1. John Chow says:

      I’ve always like Benz more than BMW. But the new M5 is really cool and does offer better value than the upcoming 2014 E63 AMG.

  21. Adrian says:

    Cool car John. Can’t wait to see how you got it.

  22. Nice audio John using your Sony Bluetooth!
    Was this filmed on your iPhone or a camcorder?

    1. John Chow says:

  23. Kevin says:
